Good indie character driven creature feature.
21 May 2014 | by fullspectrumfilmsSee all my reviews

Dead Sea is not your typical creature. The film is a good slow burn feature that focuses on character development and relationships more than the evil creature itself. In fact you could go as far as to say the real creature/s of the film are a selection of the characters beautifully illustrated by Brandon Slagle through the story telling. It is easy to think that every creature feature must with any question have something jumping out at you consistently through the whole film. Not true. Sometimes it's enough the real creature is right there in your face the whole time without scales and a tail and not jumping out at you but plotting with the other creatures.

A selection of the main characters played by Alexis Iacono, Devanny Pinn and Brandon Slagle all have strong performances throughout the film. I can't leave out all the other cast members each adding to the flavor of the film and helping the above actor and actresses deliver those performances by creating good on screen moments.

It is easy to see this film is made with love and clearly a good crew of individuals who do it for the art of making good film. Congrats to each of them for adding a indie film to the pool that has it's own voice and does not relay on re-wrapping a typical creature feature in new paper when underneath it's just the same old thing.
